Not only are these meters unsafe, but they also are hackable, and can tell anyone with a laptop what we are doing in our homes. Even battery operated devices are noted and reported…(hint, hint ladies!). It is also true that many of the devices have not undergone UL approval, and many are going up in flames. Not to mention the fact that the meters are not compatible if you are selling electricity back to the power company. They do not want you to do that. Very soon, all appliances will talk to this meter, and will turn on or off as dictated by the power company.
